While the Florida Gators are waiting on word from top 2009 target Kenny Boynton 6-2, 180, Plantation, FL American Heritage, #13 ESPN Top 100), they’re already working the class of 2010 hard and they might have a commitment coming this month. Look for good things out of Patric Young (6-8, 200, Jacksonville, FL Paxon), who had a lights out July on the AAU circuit, visited unofficially for Florida’s season opening football win over Hawaii.
Florida is Young’s clear leader. It helps that he’s best buds with 2011 UF commit, stud point guard Austin Rivers (6-3, 180, Winter Park, FL). Young will be visiting UF again for the Ole Miss game although there is a possibility that he will make yet another visit this weekend for the Miami game to hang around with Rivers, Boynton and Brandon Knight (6-3, 180, Fort Lauderdale, FL Pine Crest). It isn’t certain that Boynton and Knight will be in Gainesville this weekend, but as of today (Wednesday) they were both talking about it.
Rivers, it turns out, is taking seriously his role as a Florida recruiter. He is in constant touch with Boynton and Knight. All three of these kids are close friends and there is no doubt they are seriously considering the possibility of playing together at the next level.
